Now, a blank cartridge resembles a regular bullet on all but one crucial aspect — it does not have the bullet at its head, which is replaced by a swadding of paper, or cotton.
A blank is similar, but instead of containing a bullet, it just has some paper or felt to hold the gunpowder in place. When the hammer strikes the blank, the powder ignites with as much force as it would in a real cartridge, and the puff of igniting gas comes out of the gun barrel.
A blank is a firearm cartridge that generates a muzzle flash and an explosive sound (muzzle report) like any normal gunshots. The shooter experiences less recoil than a live round and the firearm may be modified to allow a blank to cycle the action, but without shooting a projectile (e.g. bullet or shot).

Any of your firearms can shoot blank. But if you possess a blank gun that is specifically made for this purpose, you can't shoot rubber bullets from it. Because these guns possess blocked barrels and are also called starter guns.
You can fire a blank from a regular pistol. However, most pistols that are designed to fire only blanks ( eg theatrical props and starting pistols) are designed to prevent bulleted rounds being fired, or even chambered. For instance, some starting pistols only use a large cap, there is nowhere to put a real cartridge.
